For online-only operators, this rises to R$30,000, and for operators active across both channels to R$45,000.There will be no limit to the number of licences on offer, SECAP has confirmed.The previous consultation, launched on 1 July and running to 31 August, saw more than 1,800 submissions or queries filed, including around 600 from gambling operators, a source close to the process told volume of feedback was described by iGB’s source as a “surprise” to the Ministry, and sets a new record for submissions to one of its public consultations.The second consultation, on the draft bill, is scheduled to be launched later in September according to the source, though an exact date is yet to be set. This, iGB understands, will be the industry’s final opportunity to have any input on the proposed regulatory framework for sports betting in Brazil.Following years of stalled progress and dashed hopes, the passage of Provisional Measure 846/18 in December 2018 gave lawmakers a two-year window, to 2020, in which to develop sports betting regulations. This may be extended by a further two years if necessary.The country’s government aims to bring a large, as-yet unregulated market under its control through the regulatory framework, allowing it to generate new tax revenue, increase foreign investment, create new jobs and preserve the integrity of sporting events.

Close to Nagoya, this environmental building for rental and shops, complements an older type of housing, now fully renovated and colorful. In this rather dreary suburb, the idea is to break with the existing view as if the start making of a new urbanity. Everything in a tinted ensemble, makes for more socially friendly taste, but also more personal with every individual dwelling corresponding to a separate color recognizable from the outside. Save this picture!GroundFloor PlanThe whole 2000m2 project in concrete with exterior insulation and painted colors marks different atmospheres of apartments. Small apartments in the middle of the building, big ones on the sides and on the top floor . Colors can introduce another way of building the city, giving new codes and perspectives. Save this picture!© Toshihisa IishiThe idea is to color daily life but colors are smooth in the interiors of flats.

Boschini responds to faculty criticism over recent interview

Boschini was adamant that no jobs had been lost and that there had been no layoffs. He said he had checked about two hours before the meeting and confirmed that “everybody who got a paycheck in August was still getting a check today.” He also said some job vacancies are being filled. He said that in the last two months he has approved 49 positions in academic affairs, 21 of which are faculty members and the rest being support staff.“I checked yesterday and starting in January I started easing up on the mandatory reprieves on positions because even I was looking at feeling a lot more optimistic,” he said. “…While all of those were not new positions, they did give the various means for permission to advertise a lot of different positions.”Officers of the TCU chapter of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) wrote an opinion piece in the Star-Telegram to “set the record straight” after the paper published an interview with the chancellor where the talked about how TCU navigated the pandemic. They wrote that Boschini “neglected” mentioning the universities elimination of some full-time staff positions for the upcoming year when he expressed pride for not letting anyone go last year. During Thursday’s meeting Boschini reminded faculty TCU must remain at a 14:1 faculty to student ratio due to Board of Trustees mandates.  “We are honor bound to never go above 14 to 1, so if we get too many students we are going to have to hire new faculty members to make sure we keep it like that. Right now we are at 13 to 1, so there’s a little cushion there. But, that might not always be the same in the future, but right now we’re mandated by the board to be no more than 14 to 1,” he said. Read More: Reductions to retirement benefits spark faculty concernWhile Boschini pledged to not reduce tenured positions, the AAUP officers said that most retiring tenure professors are not being replaced. “In recent years when a tenured full professor has retired, we have often been told to replace that person with an instructor not eligible for tenure,” they wrote. “Otherwise, our campus would lose the faculty position entirely.”Chancellor Boschini at the faculty town hall, March 30th, 2021 (Benton McDonald/TCU360)Boschini prefaced his remarks by noting that some of the conflict centered around a difference of opinion. “I am totally for that everyone should have their own opinion, it’s America, I understand and appreciate that,” he said. “I also understand that every opinion I have is criticized and I totally get that. But, I am still allowed to have my own opinions.”Honor code initiativesLau’Rent Honeycutt is the newest student body president. (Heesoo Yang/Staff Photographer)The Faculty Senate also discussed new honor code initiatives that are taking shape on campus. Laurel Lynch, associate professor of professional practice at the Harris College Davies School of Communication Sciences & Disorders talked about the initiatives, which are focusing on making the code more visible on campus.Lynch explained that the student relations committee will be placing honor code plaques in all academic buildings, the honor code will be included in the course catalogue, and it will be covered in student orientation and in the UNLF coursework during weeks one and seven.“Perhaps the most exciting is the idea that SGA presidents each year will record a short video that will be played for new students,” she said. “…We feel like we had some actionable things happen in the honor code this year.” center_img Twitter TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Facebook Linkedin + posts World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Facebook Previous articleGraduating seniors to receive unity cords from RRI, SGA partnershipNext articleHoroscope: May 1, 2021 Amanda Vasquez RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Non-traditional classrooms to continue to be used next semester as distancing requirements persist Amanda Vasquez ReddItlast_img read more

Despondency and resignations from the liberal press

first_img Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes News News China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison June 2, 2021 Find out more Organisation April 27, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders condemned the Chinese authorities’ hounding of liberal dailies Nanfang Dushi Bao (Southern Metropolis News) and Xin Jing Bao (Beijing News) which has spread despondency in the editorial offices expected to lead to journalists resigning after the Chinese New Year.”Many of us have lost hope in this newspaper after discovering the invisible monster that is hiding behind it,” one Xin Jing Bao journalist told the worldwide press freedom organisation. “A lot of us are ready to leave Xin Jing Bao to join other media, particularly news websites.””The extraordinary pressure exerted on the liberal dailies by press groups in thrall to the communist party is utterly scandalous”, the organisation said. “It is pushing a generation of courageous journalists to leave these newspapers”.Discouraged by the determination of the government newspaper Guangming Ribao to put them under close surveillance, several journalists, including section heads, have reportedly decided to leave the Beijing daily, after the Chinese New Year.The same thing has been happening at the daily Nanfang Dushi Bao, published in Guangzhou (South), after the sacking, on 30 December 2005, of its deputy editor, Xia Yitao. The Publicity Department (formerly Propaganda Department) was displeased by the headline of an article about sanctions imposed on a deputy governor after a coal mining accident.”Even the imprisonment of the former editor Cheng Yizhong didn’t manage to discourage us. But this is now changing, since the Nanfang press group to which the paper belongs, has been sending us very conservative people to sack the journalists they do not appreciate,” one journalist told Reporters Without Borders. “This newspaper is getting to be more and more like a government office. That is the reason for the imminent departure of the cultural editor and some of his colleagues who have no more faith in their newspaper” ChinaAsia – Pacific Help by sharing this information News Apart from an ideological turning of the screw, the desire of official press groups to bring these popular dailies under control also has a financial motive.”The former communist press is proving less and less successful. As a result, it has decided to tap into the revenue of the popular new newspapers aimed at an urban public. Nanfang Dushi Bao is a notable example of this. It earns a lot of money. Unfortunately, these resignations will allow Guangming Ribao and Nanfang Ribao to place their own journalists within the editorial teams, which will mean a victory for the Chinese communist party,” concluded one Beijing journalist.center_img Follow the news on China to go further March 12, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders condemns the way the authorities have been harassing liberal daily newspapers such as Beijing News and Southern Metropolis News.

first_imgThis week’s lettersStand tall amid the prejudices I was interested to read John Philpott’s article about ‘lookism’ (Comment,18 June), and would like to see the data that supports the statement:”tall men earn more than short men”. At a statuesque 5 foot 3 inches, even some ‘short’ men seem tall to me andwhen I walk along the street with really tall friends, a mobile phone comes inuseful. I agree that ‘lookism’ can be a significant barrier to the careerprogression of many individuals, whether they are short, bearded, bald oroverweight. One’s outward appearance should never play any part in deciding or impedingan individual’s career progression. And while legislation to combat such prejudices would be impractical, asound competency and assessment framework can provide essential guidelines foreliminating ‘lookism’ from all recruitment and promotion. Peter Rafferty Managing director, Fleming McGill HR Recruitment HR management core part of MBAI was surprised the study of MBA programmes in the article‘What about the people’ (Features, June 25) showed that only eight out of 20require students to study HR management.People management is a core part of every MBA course I havecome across. I found it easier to accept that only a minority of programmesoffered training on personal development and leadership skills, since thisfinding was also reported in a recent government study.The Council for Excellence in Management and Leadership (CEML)made a number of recommendations to ensure the content and focus of allbusiness and management education courses are tailored to the practical needsof business and employees. Most business schools recognise the need to reformtheir MBA programmes. The CEML report focuses on management and leadership skillsrather than simply knowledge about business. It recommends the creation of astrategic body to be charged with continually reviewing managers and leaders,with the development of required competencies. Organisations should say what capabilities they have inmanagement and leadership and how it is being developed. To help with this, CEML has produced a toolkit for measuringkey aspects of capability.With the steps taken by CEML, the Work Foundation, businesseducation providers and employers, the overall perceptions and benefits ofbusiness education and management qualifications can be strengthened for thegood of all parties involved.Professor Stephen WatsonPrincipal, Henley Management College and chairman of theAssociation of Business SchoolsSafer to keep an internal focus?Your Comment ‘Out of touch MBAs add little to bottom line’(News, 25 June) overstepped the mark.An MBA is not for developing the capability to trot out thesame business models as those studied, but to allow students to combine severaltools and make informed choices.You cite the Work Foundation finding that half of MBA graduatesleave their employer within 12 months of graduating. Whose fault is that? Iffirms fund people through study and then fail to take advantage, they deserveto suffer.Plenty of training activity undertaken by organisations has noclear outcome, no measurable impact and no demonstrable understanding of thebusiness benefit. MBA study is no different and the responsibility for changelies with HR.Instead of sniping at consultants, look a little deeper. HRM isone of the most poorly defined and represented business disciplines, and it isreflected in the teaching of many business schools. HR managers are not making the effort to get MBAs, understandthe business environment and make a difference. Maybe it is safer to keep aninternal focus, collect CIPD badges and carry on administrating the strategiesof others?Perhaps the real agenda for change is one that stops HR beingon the outside looking in.
